So, we're approaching our annual Autumn vacation time and a recent episode of "Life Is A Highway" on CBC got us thinking back to a stupendous trip we took to Nova Scotia in 2004. Our second and final week was spent on the road, culminating in a few days on Cape Breton Island, and it was a life altering experience! The annual Celtic Colours festival was in full swing, and although we were unable to partake in any of the actual events, the passion was in the air everywhere we went. So, in tribute to the indomitable spirit of all Cape Bretoners, on whatever shore you may have landed, here are a couple of our favourite tunes to get us into the weekend. May you be lucky enough to attend a raucous ceilidh tonight!!
Up first, Ashley MacIsaac with Mary Jane Lamond workin' Sleepy Maggie. After that, the Rankins performing their iconic "Fare Thee Well"
Have a "reel"-y fantastic weekend!
